Internet Radio Station Will Broadcast Soundtrack Recordings and Exclusive Original Programming

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Film Music Media Group announces the September 13, 2005 launch of Film Music Radio (www.FilmMusicRadio.com), an internet-based radio station which will play a 24-hour stream of soundtrack recordings. The station will feature genre-based block programs and DJ-hosted specialty shows. Film Music Radio joins other Film Music Media Group ventures, including Film Music Magazine, the Film Music Network, and the Turner Classic Movies (TCM) Young Composers Competition which Film Music co-sponsors.

The Film Music Radio schedule will be broken into two-hour genre-based segments including Science Fiction, Drama, Comedy and Family, Action, and Songs. The website will include a searchable database of reviews of these recordings, edited by author/producer Didier C. Deutsch, with links to purchase CDs, via affiliations with Amazon.com and CD Universe. During the 7AM and 7PM blocks (PDT) the station will broadcast exclusive original programs, including:

"On The Score", featuring composer interviews with film music journalist
Daniel Schweiger
"Theme and Variations", hosted by CineMedia Promotions President Beth
Krakower
"Soundtrack Cinema", hosted by Ford A. Thaxton (formerly aired on KING-FM
in Seattle)
"Clef Notes from Tinseltown", a news and review show, hosted by Dan
Goldwasser, SoundtrackNet
"Foreign Focus", featuring international soundtracks, hosted by Didier C.
Deutsch
"The Stars of Sci-Fi", featuring new cosmic soundscapes, hosted by Neil
Norman

"We're thrilled to bring people who enjoy instrumental music a new way to enjoy the best of film and television music," says Film Music Media Group founder Mark Northam. "We've combined the best of music from visual media, from the classics to the latest hits, with an incredible line-up of exclusive shows that explore the world of film music with composer interviews, insightful commentary, and new perspectives on today's new 'classical' music."

Film Music Radio is the first direct-to-consumer-oriented property of Film Music Media Group, a company specializing in providing key resources for film and television composers. The recently re-launched Film Music Magazine is the only trade magazine specializing in this industry. The Film Music Network, with locations in Los Angeles and New York, hosts monthly networking meetings and provides job leads for composers. The Film Music Institute offers professional education courses and seminars around the country, and books on the craft and business of scoring for visual media. Since 1999, Film Music Magazine has co-sponsored the annual Turner Classic Movies Young Composers Competition, which provides young composers the opportunity to compose a new score for a restored silent film that premieres on TCM.

"Film Music Radio is an exciting addition to our family of media properties that focus on music for visual media," says Northam. "We look forward to expanding our offerings for everyone who enjoys music for film and television."
